Dow’s Effigy Will Burn Tonight

On the 29th anniversary of the Bhopal Disaster, a giant effigy, four metres tall, built of mud and straw stands ready to burn as a part of the traditional burning of hated public figures.

Politicians, crooks, or in the case of the Bhopalis, a giant, horned, fork-tailed, devil, an executive from Dow Chemical.

These people are angry. He should take note.

Subersive anti-Olympic sponsor art is springing up all over London. fantastic stuff!

The activist art fraternity are getting really busy and there is going to be spome really imaginative stuff about the place.

What a shame if this takes the shine of some of the slick branding!
